SHÆLIN is a new soul crew weaving a singular music.
The group is deeply inspired by the richness of American black music (RnB, soul, hip hop, jazz, gospel) but also by other musical horizons ranging from traditional Reunion music to Steve Reich, or Dirty Projectors. Many genres with a strong history and meaning that gave birth to a modern and “feel good” sound, which exudes joie de vivre and generosity.
For the 6 members of the band, difference is a wealth, and intermix a celebration of love. Through music, words and dance, SHÆLIN brings a message of hope and unconditional faith, a humanist and panspiritual message that invites its listeners to reconnect with the greater whole, with other beings, and with themselves.
Based in France, the collective’s roots extend from Mozambique to Martinique via Italy, Cameroon, Reunion Island or Vietnam. Strong thanks to their differences in origins, ages and backgrounds, it is in the city of Tours that they connected. Together, they create a universal and unifying music.
